The Kingdom of Morocco celebrates on July 30th, 2021, the 22nd Anniversary of the Enthronement of His Majesty King Mohammed VI. It is also an opportunity for all Moroccans to reaffirm their firm attachment and the unwavering bonds of allegiance to the Sovereign, which has been perpetuated for centuries.
Despite the hardships of last year, due to Covid-19 global pandemic, Morocco’s resilience has been proven on many levels, especially crisis management, economic growth, and social security. Not only did the Kingdom manage to be self-sufficient in terms of masks, PCR tests, and respirators, it also became a producer of Covid-19 vaccine for domestic and international needs. The scope of social security and health coverage has also been widened to include a larger segment of the population, with the ambition to comprise everyone in the next decade, thanks to the New Model of Development.
On the Bilateral level, relations have never been any better. Serbia and Morocco maintain their regular political dialogue and exchange of high level visits, and are working one step at a time towards a strategic partnership. Economic and commercial exchanges have quadrupled the past year, and we are optimistic for the future. Next year as both countries are celebrating their 65th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Rabat and Belgrade, it has been decided that the year 2022 will be the year of Morocco in Serbia and the Year of Serbia in Morocco. Together with the Serbian authorities, the Embassy is preparing a rich cultural program for the occasion.
